Met some really cool people here. Staff are great but bit far out of the city. Handy for getting to/from North Chengdu station though

We only stayed here for one night but the staff seemed to enjoy their jobs and were very helpful. They had nice garden space and outdoor decking area which i imagine in the summer is an awesome place to hang out considering your in the middle of Chengdu. They have a wide variety of DVDs too if you get bored, although one that we tried did stop after about 20 minutes as it was too scratched. Overall a very nice place, we stayed in a private double with ensuite, the bed was very big.

Definitely a hostel on the nice side, with a long and good history (so I hear), but the current owner do not seem to care that much about the place as the founders did... overall, we had a good time there, but for example they offer a DVD burning service (wanted to burn pictures from my camera) but none of the computers has a DVD writer. Just these little things...

It was a great time! It was a little cold, but the Hostel addressed that problem quickly. The bar/restaurant is a blast, and you can meet great people there. Highly Recommended!

Nice big open common areas. A little dim and cool in the winter but would be great in the warmer seasons. The internet was a bit slow at times. Otherwise, helpful staff, well appointed dorm rooms and a clean and tidy good value place.

Hi , Thanks for your review. It's ture that it's cold in Winter in Chengdu. but If you turn on the radiator in the room, the room will warm up naturally. Or turn on the ai-con if it's not warm enough. About the internet, we have updated it to Fibre Optic Broadband this month. We feel sorry for it . We hope to see you next time, and wish you a wonderful journey in China!

This used to be my favourite hostel, hands down. It was so much fun when I was here 18 months ago. The staff were amazing. The bar area was great for making new friends. This time was a different story. Nana wasn't there. The girl behind the bar was so slow!! She was new, but shouldn't have been by herself. There was no party atmosphere & everyone seemed to be in their own little groups. We ended up going to Shamrock for a good time, highly recommend this Irish bar instead if you want some fun!

Great place to stay! you can ask everything you need! They have also a card for you, every 6 nights the 7th is free, it means that if you are in three and stay for two nights, the casrd is complete! Free beer when you check in, movie and bbq on saturday, free bike ride on friday and very nice people, what else do you need?!

We stayed one night in the hostel in a four-people dorm. Staff is nice. The hostel is a bit far away from Chengdu city center. However, the food is good and not too expensive. The only true problem was the temperature: it was really cold in the dorm.

Hi, Thank you so much for your reviews. In each room we have radiator providing more comfortable heating than AC. If you think the radiator is not warm enough, the AC is for sure working. Wish you a nice journey in China!

Hello Chengdu is a great hostel. The dorm beds have a curtain for privacy and lockers underneath the beds for your belongings. The food is really good and cheap. The beer is nice and cold! The travel desk is really helpful for questions regarding other cities and also for directions of getting around the area. The bicycle rental is 10yuan per day. There is a large supermarket within walking distance. The common room above the bar is cozy and relaxing. Wifi works in the dorm rooms. Evan is great!

This hostel was great, clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful giving me directions to all main attractions. Also they serve good (and cheap) food, and there is a nice lounge area.

Best hostel we have stayed at ! Only stayed one night but would defiantly go back for the atmosphere are the very helpful staff. Rooms where great, we stayed in a dorm and all the bunks had a small privacy curtain around them, giving everyone a place to get ready without clogging up the bathrooms unnessiicarily

We loved staying here. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hostel has a cute recycling station on each floor and a place to hang clothes you don't want or need anymore that others can take if they want. There is a lovely ambiance in the bar and lots of different and interesting places to sit and chat. The room was big and the water hot. The wifi was slow. If we did not hang a sign on the door our room was not cleaned which is a saving to the hostel I guess. Great food great fun.

For some reason, I did not enjoy the atmosphere in this place. That said, I came back to stay here and extended my stay here. The hostel literally had everything- nice outside area, ping pong table, free DVDs to watch, nice lounge areas, restaurant with reasonable food, tour desk. I think the problem was the lounge areas were just a bit too small to facilitate groups of travelers to chat with each other. The tour desk is a bit pushy - save some money just taking bus yourself to visit the Pandas

This place has everything but climate. If you want just a place to sleep, a good choice. As a backpacking venue/place to meet people - not so much. However they have really good staff and the travel desk is the best.

This hostel was great, welcoming staff with really helpful travel desk who gave great advice and helped with onward travel.Food was good as id the comfy bar area, The gardens within the center of the courtyard are lovely and so relaxing which is needed after a day into the city.
